Chip Shot: Intel Updates Developer Tool for Android Apps

Today, Intel announced it has expanded its Intel® C++ Compiler for Android. Android app developers can now use the compiler on Windows*, OS X* or Linux-based systems to target systems based on Intel processors. Intel’s compiler is compatible with GNU* C++ and developer tools in the Android Native Development Kit (NDK), including the Eclipse IDE. Using the Intel C++ Compiler rather than the GNU C++ compiler can yield significantly better performance. App developers can purchase and download the Intel C++ Compiler for Android at software.intel.com.
